Types of braces

Metal braces

Metal braces are the most common type of fixed appliances used by orthodontists because they are robust and very effective.  Unlike earlier traditional braces, the newer metal brackets are less noticeable because they are smaller.  If you’d like to decorate them, colourful ties can be used and changed at every appointment if you wish.

The brackets feature a beautiful champagne gold finish and a small, smooth design that is aesthetic and comfortable.


Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your orthodontist plans.  You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete.
